If Octopi had been on land during medieval times, this is what they would have looked like. That’s a scary thought. King Arthur would have been replaced by King Octo and the Knights of the Drowned Table.
I’d like to think that at some point in the evolution of Transformers, they looked as cheesy as this car one from Brave Robotics, Asratec Corp, and Sansei Technologies. The contraption is called the J-deite RIDE, which I think might translate to “Shitty Transformer.”
What if I told you that it takes a full five minutes to get a single piece of tape out of this insane Rube Goldberg machine? Hey, it’s about the journey, not the tape. At least that’s what I would keep telling myself if I had to wait on this machine to get said tape.
This overly complicated machine was built by Youtuber DaksDominos.
If you’ve never played with Nanoblocks, you really should. These nifty little building blocks are much smaller than LEGO bricks, which means they can be used to make more precise shapes. It’s like the difference between an SD screen and an HD screen, where more pixels = greater detail.
This animated LEGO scene depicts Darth Vader’s TIE fighter chasing Luke’s X-wing during the Death Star trench run in A New Hope. It is both calming and mesmerizing. Jason Allemann built this kinetic sculpture and it is a super cool desk toy that I need in my life.
Jason used moving LEGO Technic parts that are hidden just below the surface to make the ships rock back and forth.
Back in 2016, Snapchat rolled out its Snapchat Spectacles with the idea of giving fans of the platform a wearable video camera that could upload content to Snapchat. The glasses weren’t exactly a huge hit, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing a second version.
The new Spectacles look very similar in shape and style to how they looked before.
I’m a huge fan of Westworld, as I’m sure many of you are. The thought of androids who don’t even know they aren’t real and look just like us is a bit unnerving. It looks like the folks at Garner Holt Productions have created a creepy head almost worthy of being a Host in our favorite theme park of debauchery.
Sadly, the head isn’t a hot rancher’s daughter, rather it’s an old wrinkly dude that looks like he might shoot you for a shot of whiskey.
How do you think Mario got so rich? I know, it’s not so simple in our world. We don’t have blocks that give us coins when we hit them. Actually, yes we do. If times are tough and you could use a little boost in your finances, just bonk your head against this Mario block.
Jonathan Whalen built a real-life version of a Super Mario Land question block that actually spits out coins.
Julius Caesar was kind of a dick. So much so that all his friends ganged up and stabbed the life out of him. Even his best pal Brutus. Sometimes you gots to cut a brother. If you want to impress your Lit or English teacher or just want something geeky and cool for your desk at the office, this pen and pencil holder will hold your writing implements assassination style.
You’ve all seen this in movies and maybe even had it happen to you in real life. You’re in a dark cave or trapped in a dark room. So you light a match. It lasts for about 5 seconds and then burns your finger and the light goes out.
Australian beatboxer Tom Thum has put together a medley using nothing but his voice to recreate theme songs from some of the cartoons, TV shows, and movies that anyone from the ’80s will remember.
The video starts with him thanking folks for telling him his throat looks like a vagina, which is weird.
If you’re looking for a new food to impress your friends with during a Star Wars marathon, check out this recipe for Chewbacca noodle rolls. These guys were created by Jenn Fujikawa of justJENN Recipes, and they look ferocious and delicious.
They’re spring roll wrappers filled with buckwheat noodles with Chewbacca faces and bandoliers made from cut nori and fish cake.
All Hollywood seems to know how to do these days is make remakes, reboots, rehashes, and retreads. One of the movies that they haven’t touched yet is Back to the Future, and they must never be allowed to soil this classic franchise.
If there’s one thing that the internet is lacking, it’s a superior cat purr emulator. Now we have one that beats all of the rest. Its name is Purrli. This single-purpose website is designed to help you create the perfect cat purr.
Purrli aims to recreate both the sound and the presence of your very own virtual cat through this sound engine that is modeled after real kitty purrs.
Westworld is known for its lifelike robot “hosts” that you can’t tell from humans. Simone Giertz, on the other hand, is known for building really crappy robots. In fact, she’s the Queen of Shitty Robots. So the folks at Delos would never ask Simone to build them a robot for their murder-park.
